Extending functionality for a 100 MW plant
From peak shave to primary power
In Boa Vista, Brazil, DEIF supplied a complete AGC Plant Management System for a strategically important plant supplying more than 100MW of continuous power with 34 Cat® C17520 diesel generator sets for Eletrobras Distribuição Roraima, the governmentoperated electrical utility.
Originally designed to run as peak shaving and support a HV line, during construction, the plant status changed to primary power producer for the region.
With the Boa Vista plant replacing power previously supplied from Venezuela, the region will now have access to more reliable power and the capacity to become more self-sufficient, supporting economic and social development.
Within the scope of this comprehensive and flexible solution, on-site, DEIF engineers were able to change the functionality of the AGC Plant Management control system to handle the operation modes required for continuous power with customer benefits including easy push-of-a-button, automated operation, fuelsaving technology, and overall reliable control.
